Snettisham Live learning (15/03/2021)

Good morning everyone,


I trust by now you are all aware that we have had to temporarily close Snettisham Class and will once again be moving to Live Learning via Microsoft Teams.


Parent Support

I have scheduled two non-compulsory parental advice meetings for today (15/03/2021) at 8am and 5pm should you wish to speak with me about any concerns you may have. This is a good time for you to practise using the Teams software too and I’m happy to guide with this where I can. I will be calling home over the course of the week to provide more support where necessary.


Live Learning

Live Learning will take place in the mornings, with additional afternoon work available on the Teams platform, as well as Bug Club and Education City. This will be available by this afternoon once I have uploaded to the platforms. Daily Phonics at 9am, Maths at 10am and Talk for Writing (English) at 11am. Sessions will be recorded for later viewing which I will monitor for attendance so please don’t worry if you can’t make the live lesson.

Final Messages

I would really love to celebrate your children’s learning in Friday’s blog. I would love to see their work on Tapestry so, with your expressed permission, I can share it with their friends and other families. As always, If you would like to contact me via email for advice or to arrange a phone call please do so via:
